Social media influencer and model sohail shaikh says that he enjoyed collaborating with hrithik roshan and nawazuddin siddiqui
Social media influencer and model Sohail Shaikh keeps his huge fan base entertained with concept videos, parodies, and comedy videos. He is also popular for his collaboration with various celebrities, like Urvashi Rautela, Bhumi Pednekar, Dhvani Bhanushali, and Ayushmann Khurrana, to name a few, but said that he enjoyed working with Hrithik Roshan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui the most.
Sharing his experience of celebrity collaborations, he said, “I have had a good experience with almost all celebrities. I loved to work with Hrithik Roshan sir and Nawazuddin Siddiqui sir. They are very down to earth and they heard my script patiently, and even contributed their bit to it.”
He had over 10 million followers on the video-sharing application TikTok before the government banned it over security reasons. Asked how the ban affected him, he said, “TikTok was my main source of earning, it was my base as I started my career from it. And yes I was upset, but the nation comes first. Fortunately, so many apps have come into the picture now, like MOJ, and I have four million followers on that.
On the app, I stand at the third position in the country, which is another big achievement for me.””I belong to a middle-class family, and no one in my family has any knowledge about what an influencer is. But TikTok helped me a lot to gain a huge fan base. Social media gave me good opportunities, and I think anyone can try their luck here,” he added.
Sohail credits his family for their constant support and motivation with his career choice, and said, “My family is very supportive of me and they have been supporting me in each step of my life. Their way of dealing with things is learning for me, and they motivate me in unimaginable ways.”In just two months, he has over 4 million followers on the MOJ app, over three lakh followers on Instagram.
He has just started his YouTube channel and has around 32000 already. He said he gives regular updates of his life on social media to his fans, and added, “I update everything, how I live, what I do, and where I go, on Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat. It helps my well-wishers in knowing me well, and I even do live sessions so that I get to know about my fans’ likings and their demands.”
He calls himself a creative person and shared that he creates content after doing some research. “I am a very creative kind of person. I want to do things that no one has ever tried before. I try and look for new and innovative ideas on social media and other platforms and then merge them with my ideas. People like it, and I get a good response too,” he said.But with so many influencers in the market, what do you think is your USP? “I get a good response from my fans, well-wishers, and followers about my attitude, my behaviour, they love it, and they think I am very down to earth.
Apart from that, I think I have good dancing and acting skills. I have a good physique too, and all these things make me unique,” he said.So, what next? “I want to work both in TV and films. I was about to start a film, but because of the COVID situation I couldn’t sign it, so now maybe when the pandemic situation gets better I will sign it,” Sohail concluded.
